A Fuji Arts $25 Opening Special Offer Auction! Get your bid in!

Beauties - Born in Japan, Masao Yoshida moved to Paris and studied intaglio printmaking with the influential Stanley William Hayter at his Atelier 17 in Paris from 1961 to 1963. During this time, Yoshida adopted an abstracted, surrealist style, creating intricately patterned prints with subdued sophisticated color. This original, limited edition etching features women's faces within a circular center shape surrounded by rows of feather or ribbon-like shapes. Small faces or masks march across the bottom, with two anthropomorphic figures at upper left against a horizontally striped ground. A fascinating design with a wealth of detail. His works are rarely seen on the market and are a nice choice for a collector interested in modern Japanese printmaking.
